The castle

BTW — the castle in panel 1 — anything anyone should recognise from somewhere? :?: If within genre, looks like Naruto's dwelling in Konoha village :) Obvious RL check would be Tokyo Disneyland, but it doesn't look right and Fred is usually meticulous about architecture so I suspect cidjen has it.

Miho's got her war face on......and I suspect that Yaku is going to have a really good cry once this is over....

This reminds me of this scene from Orphan Black https://youtu.be/eotcYgbthOE?t=2m45s
I loved that scene (and the show). Thanks for reminding me.

Why would Miho call on Junpei? The last time they met she fought him to a standstill. He's not stronger than her war form.
But at that point he was trying to help her, and she picked up on that after the first exchange, so neither of them were fighting full-on.

Re: [1533][WIP][TWITCH] swimming back to shore [?]

Suggestion:

Most of these WIP threads only get one or two comments. Rather than start and lock a new one for every comic, perhaps we could have an ongoing Twitch thread? I think that might make it easier to look for SFS, etc.

Re: [1532] The battlefield before me

A strip with no dialogue. Very classy.

I don't particularly associate the flower with Miho. A very similar flower was seen leaving granninja's hand when she dismissed Miho in [1529]. It still could be Miho returning the diss, or alluding to the classic motif of warriors falling like cherry blossom.

Re: [1531] Don't waste it

Certainly what she's doing now isn't what she was designed to do when Tsubasa first got her...... I'm not so sure. Remember that she was to provide a safe emotional outlet for her user? For example how she tried to "be there" for Piro when she thought Nanasawa had rejected him. Junko is now the per...

Not of those who posted before me in this thread, no.

Re: [1529] The needs of my story

Since there are story types, and we know Miho to be an analogue for a specific type, I would say there is reasonable presumption that there are other analogues for other types.

Re: [1529] The needs of my story

I would have thought not.

Again just impressions, but I see grandma as head of one family. Head ninja I see in the context of a larger organization, possibly across several clans.

Junpei's attitude seems to suggest different people.

Hah! This went up just after I'd guessed that it might be a link back Sawatari Grandma. Ho hum.


Ta could be thanks (for bringing Yaku in) or from ta-ra (goodbye), or just a general dismissal.

Re: [1528] An old story that needs to be finished

The question in the previous comic about whether Mugi was Tokyo kitsune was likely strategic. She was trying to find out if she might be putting her Ninja family into a fight with the local foxgirl clan. The Himeji clan is far away and might not even come to Mugi/Yaku's defense given the poor famil...

Re: [1528] An old story that needs to be finished

<snip> P.S. I do wonder, though. That last look-over-the-shoulder from Miho… would she have a déjà vu to an earlier moment [936] when she herself called some other teenage kid a ‘monster’…? P.S. 2 This is not the first time [1491] we see Yakugashi’s response to that word… There does seem to be a wh...

If you abduct a kitsune child, is it kit-napping (twice over, even)?
What if knock her unconscious too? Would that be triple?

That last panel is the only time Junpei’s ever referred to himself in the first person. Nice touch.

I can't make out the sign clearly enough to be sure, but most love hotels also function as regular hotels. There are different rates for a "rest" and a "stay".

Re: [1524] 13 cm

For those who have been saying "sleazeball", give him credit that his main angle is "are you OK"? In the unlikely event that he hadn't spotted the switch before, the super strength is a bit of a giveaway. I think he's a tad confused at this point, even if he knows who/what Ping is.
